Top things to do in Spring

  1. Wander along the nature trails listening for nightingales and warblers singing in the woodland and hedgerows
  2. Experience the reserve as it bursts into life with the primroses and bluebells which flower along the nature trails and in the woodland
  3. Marvel at the 'loopy' lapwings as they perform their aerial displays over the wet meadows

Top things to do in Summer

  1. Relax in the warmth of the sun and enjoy the butterflies and dragonflies as they flit around the sunny paths and ponds
  2. Watch as swallows spend the warm summer days feeding low over the fields
  3. Be amazed by the sound of churring nightjars across the heathland on a warm summer evening

Top things to do in Autumn

  1. Watch as redstarts and whinchats 'flycatch' from hedge tops and fences
  2. Take a stroll around the reserve in search for fantastic fungi
  3. Enjoy the taste of fresh blackberries straight from the bramble - but remember to leave plenty for the birds and other wildlife!

Top things to do in Winter

  1. Brave the elements to experience the sight and sound of thousands of wild ducks, geese and swans
  2. Catch a glimpse of the world’s fastest bird - the peregrine - as it stoops from the sky into flocks of ducks and waders
  3. Look up among the treetops for parties of long-tailed tits clinging acrobatically on twigs
